A Hearty Breakfast For Type 2 Diabetics? *serious*

A Hearty Breakfast For Type 2 Diabetics? *serious*

A Hearty Breakfast for Type 2 Diabetics? *Serious* Member Diagnosed with Type 2 a week before Christmas 2013 A Hearty Breakfast for Type 2 Diabetics? *Serious* As I've stated in past threads, I drink Bitter Melon "tea" at every meal; thus my blood sugars never topping 125 after ANY meal. My fasting blood sugars have ranged between 75-85. The challenge I have had is in finding a breakfast food that filled me up, didn't break my carb/sugar limits, and gave me enough fuel to last me through a little past lunch (thus only needing a smaller amount of food for actual lunch). And since I am working out at a gym DAILY, I am tired of feeling hungry throughout the day. So, I've elected to have a slightly heavier breakfast on Wednesdays to provide me with more energy and to get me through the day, give me the energy needed to "feed the machine" for my workouts, and thus giving me more overall energy to maintain healthy activities for the remainder of the week and weekend. So I went on a search at a local "Fresh and Easy" grocery store here in the East Bay (Hayward, CA.; located in the the San Francisco Bay Area). I came across some organic whole wheat pancake mix and sugar free syrup. I thought, "Yeah...right. this is too good to be true." So I began reading the labels. The single serving for this Whole Wheat mix was 5g of sugar and 28g of carbs. I was thinking, geez...why so many carbs? But after reading the label, the carbs were mainly coming from two sources; the whole grain wheat flour (overall 33 grams of whole grain in this puppy) and the buttermilk powder. I initially thought it was from the corn starch, but after contacting the manufacturer, there is less than a half teaspoon of corn starch per serving. For those counting, there are 7g of carbs per Tablespoon and there ar Continue reading >>

Flax Pancakes | Low Carb & Diabetic Friendly

Flax Pancakes | Low Carb & Diabetic Friendly

Light, fluffy and tender Low Carb Flax Pancakes that are ridiculously simple to make. Awesome breakfast for Carb Counters & Diabetics – but great for anyone who enjoys a healthy breakfast! Pancakes. People love them. Pancake options, combinations and toppings are endless. The humble pancake has been reinvented a million different ways and people still find joy in getting creative with them. With a diabetic in the family I had to rethink my pancake recipes. I worked on some whole wheat pancakes and coconut flour pancakes, both delicious and will be shared in the future. But I knew I could do better. The flavor and textures were great – but I knew I could get lower with the carbohydrate numbers. I knew the solution as well – the almighty ground flaxseed meal. I love ground flax. It’s an ingredient I use often – it tastes great, is filling, packs some serious nutrition and it’s cheap! I add it to yogurt, smoothies, to many of my baked goodies and I love making breakfast foods with it – I make a mean flax porridge and endless flax mug muffin combinations. I knew with a little coaxing it would take on pancake form perfectly. I found a few recipes online to try and start with – like always, it’s a lot of trial and error. When I finally found something that worked I just about fell in love. Simple, to the point, and tasted like a pancake you would want to eat any given morning. You’ll definitely know that it’s not your regular all-purpose flour pancake, but man-oh-man, it sure is surprisingly close. Light, fluffy and tender – with a drizzle of syrup some might not even notice the difference. My family was in disbelief. My daughter loves them and says they remind her of “French Toast Pancakes”. Seriously, people without any dietary restrictions can a Continue reading >>

Whole Wheat And Nut Pancakes

Whole Wheat And Nut Pancakes

Net Carbohydrates 3.5 per pancake *YOU get to choose how many pancakes work for you Chefs Note: Like most restaurants, I make the batter for these full flavored lighter than air pancakes the night before. This allows the solids to fully absorb the liquids and that way I wake up and am ready to go. My choice is to make them in a 4 inch size, not too big not too small, but just right. 1/3 cup toasted walnuts or almonds OR cup almond flour Combine the toasted nuts and whole wheat flour in a food processor. Pulse until the nuts are pulverized and incorporated into the flour. Add remaining DRY ingredients and pulse to combine. Combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and beat with a whisk to combine. Slowly add the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to set up for 15-20 minutes (best overnight in the refrigerator) Note: If you do use the refrigerator method you may have to add a few table spoons more milk to loosen the batter. Heat griddle or frying pan to medium high. Spoon a tablespoon of batter for each pancake into the pan or on the griddle. Allow small bubbles to form before turning (about 1 minute) and flip and cook one minute more, Serve with fresh berry sauce below. Continue reading >>

Have Your Pancakes And Eat Them Too!

Have Your Pancakes And Eat Them Too!

Top 3 blood sugar grenades: 1) Bagels 2) Pizza 3) Pancakes. Heavy and saturated with white flour and fat… they are the big bullies of blood sugar bad guys. This is only of course if you do not take the appropriate action with your insulin management when consuming one of these filling comfort foods. Even the smartest diabetic, even a diabetic with a degree in mathematics, or even a diabetic with psychic powers can often times still not prevent the erratic high blood sugar that comes with the risk of eating one of these foods. I’ll never forget, when I was the Health Services Manager at the Barton Center for Children with Diabetes, and every single time it was ‘Pancake Breakfast’, there would be a line outside of the health center about 2 hours after breakfast with thirsty and cranky girls needing an extra shot or permission for an extra bolus. I’m not making that up. Why is this? It’s the simple concept of white flour and fat and the delayed spike in blood sugar. When something is made with whole grains and is high in fiber, there is a decreased spike (the food absorption is spread out more evenly) then there is with the jacked-up spike that comes from foods with little to no fiber and lot’s of fat and/or sugar. It’s what makes eating and counting carbs the most complicated part of the day for those of us living with diabetes. So, when I found this great recipe for spinach pancakes in one of my Parents (March 2014 print) magazines, I didn’t even think about it for myself, but instead just thought it may be a sneaky way to get my constipated toddler to get some good nutrients (sorry, TMI). But after making them…and then proceeding to eat two of them because they were so delicious, I thought I would share with all of you! Cooking is something I absolut Continue reading >>

7 Easy Breakfast Ideas For Type 2 Diabetes

7 Easy Breakfast Ideas For Type 2 Diabetes

Cooking with less fat by using nonstick pans and cooking sprays and avoiding fat- and sugar-laden coffee drinks will help ensure that you're eating a healthy breakfast. For many people, breakfast is the most neglected meal of the day. But if you have type 2 diabetes, breakfast is a must, and it can have real benefits. “The body really needs the nutrients that breakfast provides to literally ‘break the fast’ that results during sleeping hours,” says Kelly Kennedy, MS, RD, an Everyday Health dietitian. “Having a source of healthy carbohydrates along with protein and fiber is the perfect way to start the morning.” Eating foods at breakfast that have a low glycemic index may help prevent a spike in blood sugar all morning long — and even after lunch. Eating peanut butter or almond butter at breakfast, for example, will keep you feeling full, thanks to the combination of protein and fat, according to the American Diabetes Association. And a good breakfast helps kick-start your morning metabolism and keeps your energy up throughout the day. Pressed for time? You don't have to create an elaborate spread. Here are seven diabetes-friendly breakfast ideas to help you stay healthy and get on with your day. 1. Breakfast Shake For a meal in a minute, blend one cup of fat-free milk or plain nonfat yogurt with one-half cup of fruit, such as strawberries, bananas, or blueberries. Add one teaspoon of wheat germ, a teaspoon of nuts, and ice and blend for a tasty, filling, and healthy breakfast. Time saver: Measure everything out the night before. 2. Muffin Parfait Halve a whole grain or other high-fiber muffin (aim for one with 30 grams of carbohydrates and at least 3 grams of fiber), cover with berries, and top with a dollop of low- or nonfat yogurt for a fast and easy bre Continue reading >>

However, prepared with whole wheat flour, they can be healthy. Many recipe variations exist, but the basic ingredients are whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk and oil. bowl of whole wheat flourPhoto Credit: marekuliasz/iStock/Getty Images Whole wheat flour, like all whole grains, is a good source of carbohydrates, which provide energy. Whole grains are also a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves in water in your digestive system. It helps slow absorption of sugar into your blood and can lower cholesterol. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve; it helps you avoid constipation. The University of Georgia Health Center says the fiber in whole grains helps you feel full, thereby aiding in weight loss and maintenance. eggs and milk on countertopPhoto Credit: Jupiterimages/Creatas/Getty Images The eggs and milk used to make whole wheat pancakes are good animal sources of protein; the flour is a good plant source.

Eggs contain fat and cholesterol, most of which is found in the yolk. The University Continue reading >>
